## Abstract

We propose to determine the displacement field u:ℐ⊂ℝ→ℝ of a 1-D bar extended in a hard device by minimizing a non-local energy functional of the type

Π[u]:=∫ ℐ Uu ' (x)+1 K∑ x i ∈J u [u](x i )ρ(x-x i )dx+∑ x i ∈J u ϕ([u](x i )),

where K is a material parameter, [u](x i ) denotes the jump of u at x i and J u ⊂ℐ is the set of all jump points. For appropriate choice of the bulk energy U(·), of the surface energy ϕ(·) and of the weight function ρ(·), we prove an existence theorem for minimizers in the space SBV(ℐ) of special bounded variation functions, and we qualitatively discuss their form by investigating the corresponding Euler-Lagrange equations. We show that, for sufficiently large values of bar elongation, minimizers of the energy are discontinuous and, most of all, the non-local term [u](x i )ρ(x-x i ) influences the relative position among the jump points, a finding that is of crucial importance to reproduce the experimental evidence.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.

You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
